If my decendants want to use these words about my life, I would be really
honored. I was taught by a wonderful mother to follow the gospel, never say no
to a calling, and to fulfill those callings to the very best of my ability.
Now at an advanced age of 88, with two church callings,and I look back on my
mother's life, I can testify that her life was a true example of Faith,
hope, and Charity, and I have made every effort to follow her example
There is a head stone in a cemetery that reads, "Duty to God, Family and
Country were the hallmarks of her life". IMO God, Family and Country are
three pretty good words as well.
RE:What 3 words would describe your life? “… faith, hope,
charity(agape,G26) these three; but the greatest of these is charity(agape, G
26).(1Cor 13:13 KJV)S/B, faith hope and “love”. But the
greatest of these is love. (1Cor 13:13 NET,NIV,NASB). Moroni follows the poor
KJV translation “i.e…,“If ye keep my commandments,
ye shall abide in my love=( G,26) even as I have kept my Father's
commandments, and abide in his love=”(G,26) . (John 15:10) Or,
“Greater love=(G26) hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life
for his friends”. (John 15:13)
For me the three words is Honesty, love for GOD, Faith. With this all other
things follows. From this inbuilt attribute the spirit manifest to the eyes of
people wherein they testify before you who you are.
This reminds me of a song sung by the Roy Rogers - Dale Evens couple when I was
young. "You gotta have Faith Hope and Charity, that's the way to live
successfully. How do I know, the Bible tells me so. Don't worry about
tomorrow, just be real good to day, the Lord will be beside you, He'll
[???] all the way!" I searched it out a while back and got two recordings,
one of the two, and one of Dale. Hard to find.
I GOT OUT!
